Chiefs' GM Carl Peterson Resigns After Dismal Season

Bleacher ReportAnalyst IDecember 15, 2008

Kansas City Chiefs' owner Clark Hunt confirmed Monday that general manager Carl Peterson has resigned after the Chiefs' dismal season so far. His resignation will take effect at the end of the season.

The Chiefs are 2-12 on the season so far with two games still remaining.

Peterson took over in 1989. He hired Marty Schottenheimer as head coach and they built the Chiefs into an NFL powerhouse over the next 10 years.

Head coach Herm Edwards' job is still a big question mark at this time. While many fans believe that this is a rebuilding year, it is obvious that Peterson didn't see it that way.

Peterson was not available for comment.
